Flower Cake

I've decided I do love making these paper flowers. You can match whatever paper and inks you are using, and when your card stock is thick like Stampin Up's you can split it and it gives you a fluffy texture. There is a technique called felted paper where you pull apart your card stock and it looks like felt, so there you go, you could make a whole felt flower. Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge wants us to Dazzle them, but I've just got a subtle dazzle going on, hope they let me slide through.
You might notice a little different look to picture placement, I'm using the up dated version of editor that I found under Settings. I'm pretty sure with this I can have more choices on where I put my pictures in a post, so bear with the learning curve here, please, Thanks :-)

Supplies: Dk. ivory card blank 4" X 5 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: Stampin Up, Floral background paper unknown, Stamps: Stampin Up-Happy Moments, Ink: Stampin Up-Whisper White, Ruby Red, CTMH-Z2120 Garden Green, Cuttlebug embossing folder-Textile, Cuttlebug Die-Flowers, Stampin Up- word window punch, modern label punch, Fiskars Shape Cutter Template-Circles 1, Marvy sm. circle punch, The Paper Studio Spare Parts- mini heart brads, Michael's-Holiday ribbon, Michael's-rhinestone stickers, pop dots, glue dots.
